Mystery Chocolate Chip Pecan Pie

Prep Time: 30 min.

Chill Time: 30 min.

Bake Time: 55 min.

Crust:

1 1/3 cup flour

½ teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons sugar

4 tablespoons cold butter, cut into cubes

4 tablespoons cold butter flavored Crisco, cut into cubes

4 to 5 tablespoons ice water

Combine flour, salt, and sugar in a small bowl. Add the butter and Crisco to the flour mixture. Toss it to coat each piece in flour. Using a pastry cutter, cut the butter and Crisco into the flour mixture until it is the size of green peas. Using a spoon, carefully stir in the water one tablespoon at a time until it is moistened and starts to come together. Form dough into a ball and wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for thirty minutes. Once chilled, roll out the dough on a floured surface to about 1/8 inch in thickness. Fit the dough into a nine inch pie plate and trim the excess off the edges. Then crimp the edges and mold into desired fashion. Prick the dough with a fork and set aside. 

Filling:

8 oz. cream cheese, softened

4 large eggs, divided

½ cup white sugar

2 tsp. vanilla extract, divided

½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 cup chopped pecans

¼ cup butter

1 cup light corn syrup

¼ cup light brown sugar

1/8 tsp. salt

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl beat the cream cheese, 1 egg, white sugar, and 1 tsp. of vanilla with an electric mixer until smooth. Pour into the bottom of the prepared pie crust and sprinkle with the chocolate chips and pecans. In a small sauce pan melt butter over medium heat and cook until slightly golden in color, let cool.  In another bowl wisk together the butter, remaining three eggs, and last three ingredients until smooth and pour over the pecans. Bake for 50-55 minutes then let cool completely and serve with whipped cream if desired.
